The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

An historic inland port, Helston is a friendly town with a bubbly personality and a stay in a Helston holiday cottage makes a fascinating gateway to south-west Cornwall.
Step back to yesteryear along the Heritage Trail - look out for the old miners' cottages, the old well, the large monument built in honour of local banker Millett Grylls, the birthplace of boxer Bob Fitzsimmons, the Guildhall, St. Michael's Church and an impressive cannon outside the Folk Museum (free admission). You'll also find some great pubs, cafés, restaurants and traditional pasty shops.
Remember Wogan's chart-topping hit back in the 1970s? Well it has strong ties with Helston, Cornwall's second oldest town and host to the Furry or Floral Dance every May. Dating back centuries, this legendary festival draws crowds and there's a real party atmosphere from daybreak 'til dusk, with children and adults dancing in step to the local band. Book your rental cottage in Helston well in advance and join in with the celebrations!
Travelling with the family? As well as a park and boating lake, Flambards theme park and the National Seal Sanctuary are just down the road. Not forgetting the pretty coastal village of Porthleven for days on the beach, boat trips and so on.
For lovely woodland and coastal walks, head for the Penrose Estate, start of a seven-mile circular trail that takes in Loe Pool, Cornwall's biggest freshwater lake separated from the sea by a long sandbar and home to an incredible array of waterfowl.
Just a taste of what's on offer when you pick Helston for a cottage holiday!
